READ IT & SLEEP – In Person! “Chicks & Salsa” with Andre Keitt

READ IT & SLEEP – In Person! Chicks and Salsa with Storyteller Andre Kiett

Friday, October 22 at 6:30pm

Join Charter Oak Cultural Center for our monthly pajama party for young readers. This month, beloved storyteller Andre Keitt shares Chicks and Salsa. This adorable story is about barnyard animals that get fed up with eating the same old food and find a way to whip up a delicious snack of chips and salsa.

Following the reading, we will make paper bag puppets and take part in the chicken dance too! Each child will receive a free copy of Chicks and Salsa, a small jar of salsa, and a recipe to make their own salsa.

We are back in person! Families are required to wear a face mask and adhere to our social distancing guidelines. If anyone in the family is not feeling well, we request that you please stay home.

About Chicks and Salsa:

What happens at Nuthatcher Farm when the chickens get tired of the same old chicken feed? The rooster hatches a plan, of course! With a pinch of genius, a dash of resourcefulness, and a little pilfering from the farmer’s garden, the chickens whip up a scrumptious snack of chips and salsa. When the rest of the barnyard gets a whiff of the spicy smells and want to join in, it can mean only one thing . . . FIESTA! But when the big day arrives, all their spicy southwestern supplies are gone! It seems that Mr. and Mrs. Nuthatcher have caught on to the flavor craze as well, and the only thing left for the animals to do is to try a new culinary style-ooh la la!
